Teething?? So much dribble!!

My LB is 10 weeks old and over the past two weeks has been dribbling soooo much! He soaks his vests and beginning to get sore under his chin. So now put dribble bibs on him. He also now chews his hands and if your hand is close enough he will chew the hell out of your finger!
I'm unsure if he's teething as he is 1.) fairly young still and 2.) he has a milk allergy and still throws up a bit so unsure if the dribble is because he feels sick.
What were your LO symptoms from teething and how old were they? How did you know for sure they were?

Yeah, bloodhound levels of dribbling. Bibs galore.

Sadly it could be months before you see any teeth, the dribbling starts just because they're moving around under the gum line.

I've never seen a human dribble so much!! Lol I didn't think teething could take so long. Poor guy if he is

yep sounds like teething alright
Though they're not necessarily feeling any discomfort (apart from rashes etc from the drool)
My 9 month old has been dribbling non-stop since 2 months old, but we only get the red cheeks, crankiness, sore bum every once in a while

My third is eight and a half months. Has been doing this for ages. Not one tooth... Second son showed no signs but two teeth appeared at three months shock but yep the rives of dribble and chewing everything is classic. As are a lot of funny spots and really acidic smelling nappies. Such fun!

Yep, sounds like teeth.

Get a huge stack of bibs and change them regularly through the day.

His nappies do smell bad anyway because of the formula he's on but he has gone from one dirty nappy to 3 in a day. So that could be a sign too??

Lots of dribble here too! Got 2 teeth at 5 months but the dribble is still just as bad!
